Negotiation & Mediation
Outten & Golden attorneys negotiate on behalf of our clients in a wide variety of situations, such as when an employee is fired, is entering a new job, or seeks a better compensation package. We frequently advise and coach clients while they negotiate on their own behalf.
Outten & Golden also represents employees in the more formal negotiation context of mediation. In mediation a neutral third-party facilitates the negotiation. The mediator is not a judge, but a neutral whose only job is to help the parties reach agreement. If they do not, there is no deal, and the dispute carries on. We represent clients in mediations to protect their interests, help them evaluate proposals and make counter-proposals, and optimize their ultimate result.
